worth seeing this type of cathedral, an interesting contrast to the traditional churches arond the contry one sees as a tourist. Also interesting to see the tomb of Slyvia Pankhurst (and her son, Richard) outside

The Holy Trinity Cathedral was an interesting place to visit, learn more about the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, and see the tombs of Emperor Haile Selassie and Empress Menen Asfaw.

Beautiful church and the burial place of Haile Selassie. The grounds are interesting with a Haile Selassie museum, a memorial to victims of the Communist Derg and a group of monuments to Ethiopian heroes.

The cathedral was built on an historical site of the capital’s development and is well preserved. Usual courtesy of shoes off at door but you were allowed to take photos respectfully inside the cathedral. Saturday morning was a great time to visit as no one around or service in progress. Haile Selassie I and his wife have their tombs inside the cathedral near the main beautiful dome. Outside the cathedral the graveyard also contains the memorials of the most famous Ethiopians. Must see part of an Addis Ababa visit.

At 200 of the local currency, with its "hit the tourists with much higher chargers" this cathedral is worth seeing once for the church, a small museum of religious artifacts, and some interesting graveyards. Shame on the practice of fleecing non-natives just to see a church.

While not a large church by western standards it certainly does not lack character and should be visited. The stained glass is beautiful. There are both the traditional bible scenes and modern glass.
Be sure to visit the cemetery and see the incredible monuments.

The church looks pretty nice from the outside, and I was really hoping to go in, but unfortunately this was the absolute end of my trip and I didn't have the 200 birr in cash that they (surprisingly, to me) require for admission. (roughly $6). It wasn't that it was too expensive, I just was out of birr. Yeah, I could have gone to an ATM, but it wasn't worth it for just this one place.
